The Philadelphia Eagles offensive need to keep a close eye on Nate Herbig

Last year was hard to watch thanks to what seemed like one disaster after another. What would end in a four-win season, mostly due to injuries to the offensive line, still, even with all of the bad, gave us a silver lining.

In all of the mess, the Philadelphia Eagles’ front office found a few solid pieces on the offensive line. One of those guys being versatile Nate Herbig. The six-foot-four, 335-pound center/guard is a solid depth addition to the Eagle’s offensive line. A complete road grader, Herbig has the tools NFL coaches covet at the highest level.

The Hawaii native is a natural athlete and has the skillset to be a difference-maker in the near future. Last year, Herbig got a lot more playing time than anyone expected or even wanted, but it was truly a blessing in disguise as he has slowly developed into a potential starter.

When the final preseason game comes and goes, Herbig will have another opportunity to add to his resume and add to his resume he shall.
